My husband and I are leaving Bremerton Sunday Sept 9 to drive down the Coast. Google Maps has us in Astoria in 3 1/2 hours (morning drive)
From there I'd like to drive down to Reedsport with the following "penciled in" stops. Note: We like to drive and see new views, love harbors and boats and the ocean - not too much for poking around stores or towns. Tidepools, Sea Lions and Dune buggie rides and the like interest me most.
Comments welcome ... and insert recommendations at will.
Cannon Beach - Cause everyone seems to say to go there
Newport for Mo's seafood
Yachats - for tidal pools
Cape Perpetua for Devil's Churn
Sea Lion Cave - self explanatory
Florence - Dune Buggies
If we're in Astoria at noon Sunday, what morning would we reserve Dune Buggies for as we plan to drive that afternoon to Portland to fly out the next day. I'm not sure if Tuesday or Wednesday would be it.
Also, as it's a vacation I like a reasonable hotel and would be willing to pay for a 'destination/resort'' hotel here or there if it was really a neat place to visit. If not, any of the mid price chains would do. Recommendations for that as well are welcome.
Have I missed something I should have asked?
